IRB applications are accepted and reviewed throughout the summer; however, there may
be delays in the normal 2 week (accelerated) and 3 week (standard/full board) review
timelines since reviewing faculty may be out of office during some of this time.
IRB meetings are also not scheduled to take place during the summer months. Applications
received that require full board review will be reviewed during the August IRB meeting.
The IRB does not meet over the summer, so requests for full board review will NOT
be reviewed until the next scheduled IRB meeting, August 16.
Thanksgiving & Winter Breaks
Towson University will be closed for the Thanksgiving and Winter breaks from November 27 - December 1 and December 20 - January 1. IRB reviews WILL NOT be conducted
during this time, so there may be delays in receiving application confirmations and
